apologize for that. if you will, sir. >> guest: sure, i was say that unfortunately the obama administration has not made a priority to prosecute those felons with guns. 15,000 felons and funneltives tried to purchase a gun and were turned down. they prosecuted just 44. let me repeat the numbers of the out 156,000 fe lops and fumetives illegally trying to purchase autobahn, the obama justice department only prosecuted 44. i am introducing legislation to create a task force in department of justice. we need to prosecute violent felons and fugitives to go after themnd protect ourselves against violent crime. we shouldn't strip away the right to bear arm of lawful, peaceful citizens. >> lou: senator reid, the majority leader called for a cloture vote at 11:00 tomorrow morning. you and a number of your colleagues have also said you will filibuster should the need arise. is it your sense that the need will arise? are you committed to a fill buster? >> what i think is critical, is that for any bill that abridges the bill of rights and in particular undermines the second amendment right to keep and
, think about bush-cheney and think about obama administration. fbi under bush-cheney, would they have been -- would they have interrogated him? would they have brought him in and spent more time with tamerlan years ago in 2009 when they had his name on the list? when his name popped up on the list would they have gone after them, or was there pc stuff at work where the obama administration says, look, we are not going to go after him right now. he has been cleared. let's not take a look now and let's not follow him. my concern is the treatment of terror under obama is different than the treatment of terror under bush-cheney. obama doesn't want to call it terror. he wants to call it -- i don't know. >> the fort hood one was classified as workplace violence. i don't know if they would claim a do over on that one. greg, you talked about the fbi on saturday when we had our special show. as we have gone over the past two days, even this morning there was something that said that perhaps one of the airlines misspelled one of these characters' names. tsarnaev is not the easiest to spell. i c
to guantanamo. in any case the obama administration has shown absolutely no interest in that idea and every indication is that he will be tried as a criminal defendant in an american criminal courtroom. >> lindsey graham who himself is a military attorney, has spent 30 years in the u.s. air force, he insists he wants tsarnaev to be tried in american civilian court, but that didn't preclude at least for now naming him an enemy combatant to try to question him to see if there are other bombs out there, other individuals who may be involved. sort of this imminent threat notion. is he on sound legal ground, lindsey graham, when he says, yes, he'll go before a civil trial, but at least for now name him an enemy combatant so he can be questioned? >> well, the obama administration has established a policy of a so-called public safety exception to the miranda rule where for some period of time, it's not entirely clear how long, a suspect can be questioned without miranda warnings and that apparently is what's happening here. again, it's complicated somewhat by the fact that we didn't know exactly w
to handle suspect who is are american citizens. after his capture on friday, the obama administration announced its decision not to read the suspect his mir anda rights immediately upon arrest. the justice department invoked what is known as the public safety exception, one that enables them to get information relating to a possible imminent attack. immediately after tsarnaev was apprehended, the u.s. attorney in boston, carmen ortiz explained the choice not to read tsarnaev his miranda rights. >> there is a public safety exemption in cases of national security and potential charges involving acts of terrorism. so the government has the opportunity right now. >> the decision was not welcomed by everyone. in a statement the aclu called the move unamerican. explaining every criminal defendant has a right to be brought before a judge and to have access to counsel. we mustwaiveer from our tried and true. urging the administration to go further and declare the suspect an enemy combatant. a move that would strip tsarnaev of his constitutional rights. on fox news sunday, congressman peter ki
hospital, washington is debating how to handle his prosecution. while the obama administration has agreed to decllay a readingf the miranda rights, the administration is not going along with republicans who are calling for a change in the prosecution play book. >> this man in my view should be designated as a potential enemy combatant and we should be allowed to question him for intelligence gathering purposes. >> literally hundreds of terrorists, those accused of terrorism, have been successfully prosecuted and imprisoned in the united states using the same process that's being used in this case in boston. >> at the same time, lawmakers want to know a lot more about the suspect's dead brother, tamerlan tsarnaev traveled to russia for six months last year after he was brought to the attention of the fbi as a possible islamist extremist. this has added a sharp new angle to the debate over immigration reform. >>> we have new video to share with you tonight. this is home video obtained by nbc news showing surviving bombing suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev competing in a wrestling match in 2009. he'
to sell its u.s. corona beer business to constellation brands. the obama administration originally blocked the deal, saying anheuser would have had too much control over the american beer market. seaworld stock caught a wave in its first public day of trading. shares opened at $27 and closed just above $33. also friday, blackhawk networks stock opened at $23 and closed around $26. today, truett-hurst wineries is going public in the first winery ipo since 1999. and next week, ing plans to spin off its u.s. insurance unit for $1.5 billion in the second-biggest ipo in a year. mcdonald's first quarter earnings were a mixed bag: profits were up, but same-store sales slowed in the first quarterly decline in a decade. mcdonald's blames the economy and increased competition for the slump. it hopes dollar menu items will bring customers back in the spring. kimberly clark's first quarter profits were up 13% on strong sales in brands kleenex and cottonelle. also, emerging markets are bringing demand for diapers and household goods. still to come, why so many americans are scared of the stock market.
.s. is on the offense when it comes to china and cybersecurity. "the wall street journal" reporting the obama administration is considering several aggressive options to confront china ranging from diplomatic pressure to indicting chinese nationals in u.s. courts. officials tell "the journal" these options is not necessarily imminent, but they demonstrate how cybersecurity has become a central part of diplomacy. >>> and the dreamliner could be flying again within weeks. the faa has approved the aircraft maker's plan to fix its troubled batteries. >>> the top trending stories. plus the atf wants to know what caused a massive ferlt lieser plant explosion in texas. >>> and a funny car that provides anything but laughs in north carolina. details next. >>> more than four days after that huge explosion at a fertilizer plant in central texas, officials say everyone is accounted for. 14 people killed, 200 injured, and of the 14, 10 were first responders. gabe gutierrez reports from west, texas. >> reporter: new video of the damage in west, texas, after a fertilizer facility exploded in a blinding fir
. i hope the obama administration will allow us that option that exists in our law. they have a very bad track record here. >> reporter: fox news is told investigators are probing a potential link to a islamist group as first reported on fox over the weekend. they were responsible for the attack on moscow airport. in response the group issued a statement saying their disagreement is with russia. they did not deny knowing the brothers. also according to one source who has reviewed that, they were undercut in their claims trying to deny any connection because they pointed the finger as russia as being responsible for these bombings which of course there is no evidence to support that, jon. jon: catherine herridge, lots of tangled leads to unravel here. catherine, thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. jenna: for more on this now we'll bring in our next guest, chris voss, retired fbi special agent and hostage negotiator and manager of insight security. we talked you to last few times in. great to have you back on the program. >> thank you, jenna. jenna: catherine is reporting on there
with a promise. the obama administration is committed to preserving and improving the jewish state's military edge in the region, part of that includes the much talked about iron dome missile defense system. kevin conley reports. >> it is an israel designed american funded break through n military technology. all possibly a kind of optical illusion. iron dome is a missile defense system credited by israel with destroying nearly 0% of the rockets fired at it during the last conflict with palestinians in gaza. not everyone is convinced. because the incoming rockets are invisible to the naked eye a handful of skeptics say we might be witnessing the missiles themselves self drurkting without hitting anything. >> i don't know exactly what happened. would like to have an answer. how me your infrared videos. >> israel's enemies get the importance of the system. this internet video claiming responsibility for the recent attack ended with a taunting message that iron dome did not stop it. the truth is not many are listening to those voices of doubt. take these iron dome in the south of the country. m
bad. it's a black guy for the obama administration, congress and the faa. this is going to come back and haunt washington in a major way. connell: you said it would be disastrous for the administration. why? >> well, i think ultimately the jury understands there are always ways to cut spending. it would make the obama administration appear as though it is making six. there has to be some other way to reduce expenditures that do not impact flight times and everything. do not think this looks good for congress or the obama administration. connell: most people believe that it is the big four medicare and the fence that would really hit the budget and that is where we would really have to cut back. we do that, there will be political fallout from everything. they like their social security. they like their better. >> yes. i think so. the real problem is government overspent. we also have a lack of growth. if you have strong economic growth, you would not have these problems of revenue shortfalls that come into spending. ultimately, this is pretty basic. there is a lot of pork in the budg
agencies to tell you before they ask you a question you don't have to answer it. the obama administration has taken a radical approach to the miranda rule by coming out of nowhere with this 48 hour rule that doesn't exist in any statute and no court has permitted it. >> going to regret it? >> i think they will. bass opposite they start using it there will be no stop to it. >> shepard: investigators want to talk with the wife of the older bombing suspect. are lawyer says she won't be able to tell them much because she had no idea he was up to anything until she saw he was a suspect on television. that part of the story is next. updating our breaking news. authorities in canada are expected to announce multiple arrests relate toad what they're calling a major bomb plot. we're now getting conflicting reports about whether new york city was on a target list. sources telling fox news, at laos one man was arrested in quebec, another in ontario. that were in communication with people in the states and overseas and had ties to radical groups. part of the plot was to blow up a bridge in canada whe
. so the tension is going to focus on the obama administration and following this. we saw during the presidential election campaign mitt romney continually criticized the president being soft on terrorism inspect.. >> and the benghazi incident where it seemed they -- responding to the threat sfp. >> the obama administration was reluctant to use the word terrorism and link it with al qaeda. we saw that a little bit last week, a day before the word "terrorist" was used. this is the line the republicans will use against the president, that he's soft on terror. we're already seeing senior republicans accusing the fbi of dropping the ball on this one, senator lindsay graham and senior members of the house. >> are they justified? is there any way of knowing how many threats like this come into the u.s. on a daily, even hourly basis, and whether in the grand scheme of thing this one ought to have raised the flags? >> i'm not privy to the particular piece of intelligence on this. i imagine obviously they would have thousands of these and things on an annual basis. lindsey graham has said
, or even any more likely to be suspicious as bad people. by the way, the bad guys, the obama administration has dramatically increased deportations as you know of the real criminals who we tend to be able to find and deport when necessary. >> mr. walsh? >> jonathan, these two guys, jonathan, these two guys weren't just losers. they were part of radical islam. they were radicalized. >> that's right. >> this is a threat we've known has existed for a number of years. >> it has nothing to do with the immigration bill. it's irrelevant. it's not being rushed through as you said. the bill has been pending for white a whi quite a while. >> jonathan, it's sophisticated mindsets like yours that get americans killed because you don't recognize we're at war. >> joe, i think i can call you joe now since you're not in congress anymore. you know, that's kind of -- that's the kind of level of debate saying it's people like you who cause us to be hit by terrorists. that's what lowers the whole tenner of the conversation. makes it very hard to have reasonable, good policy-making. the emotion you apply to the
happened today could have happened 30 days from now. this is what the obama administration wants. they don't care about the intelligence. they made it very clear they want people to have lawyers, to have trials and if we lose intelligence in the process, they say that's regrettable but that's just the way it is. that is unacceptable to me. it should be unacceptable to anybody who cares about preventing future terrorist attacks. >> mitch epnor it has my back up. who cares about my back. all i'm saying it sounds like this is the criminal justice model not a terrorist bombing warfare model. that's something that if administration has been accused of. did they make a mistake here? >> well, i'm going to agree it is a criminal justice model and not a terrorist enemy combatant model. that's clearly true. >> why is it true? >> it's true because he was charged under a criminal complaint today. he was brought before a magistrate. they followed standard operating procedure, every appearance to a criminal complaint t. magistrate always, always informs the defendant that he has a right to a lawyer, tha
believe it >>> is it possible to save too much money for your retirement? obama administration thinks so. the president's budget proposal would automatically enroll workers in retirement accounts, that's good. but then set a limit, set a limit on how much that you can save. the proposal says $3 million is enough. because "some wealthy individuals are able to accumulate many millions of dollars in their accounts. substantially more thanis needed to fund reasonable levels of retirement savings." should the government decide how much money you're allowed to save for retirement? joining me now, "wall street journal" senior economic writer steve moore. and steve, you know, i don't have a life so i was reading the president's budget proposal. and there it was on page 18. he wants to cap the amount that we can save for retirement. i can't believe it. >> you know, tom, the budget proposal that came out by the president had, at you know, hundreds and hundreds of new proposals for funding this program and at program. you know, thousands of activities that are going to get certain levels of funding
and should not have miranda rights. it seems the obama administration is going to be straddling the middle ground, as they did with the so-called underwear bomber from a few years ago. host: "national journal" reporting the headline, "pete williams' reporting philosophy d y was g boon sighttory r guest: i would have to say that pete williams is the best i have ever come across, so measured and sofer. is amazing he was able to be showcased the way he was. this was a complicated story. a lot of journalists for getting the facts wrong as it was developing in real time, but pete williams was a constant force who was right 100% of the way. it is a model to all of us, people who were starting to this profession. host: the essence of the story is not jumping ahead of the story. on monday, some news organizations saying that dozens of people were killed. that was not the case, three weled.re kil the on-line sleuths pinpointed the wrong individuals before the fbi released those two photographs. guest: it is always important to realize and people get carried away in the heat of the moment, we have

that the blind sheik whose picture is up on the screen now is -- might be freed by the obama administration and that the president morrisey in egypt wanted him back. and that seemed to infuriate you some what and you wrote an article will obama free the blind sheik. now, if you think about this, in this case if the death penalty is not sought are you concerned that some president down the road could just ignore the issue of a life sentence imposed by a federal judge and just send the terrorists off somewhere? >> on this guy. tsarnaev? >> judge jeanine: right. >> i'm not concerned about that. the sheik is a highly symbolic figure among muslims. he was and still is widely respected as a muslim scholar. and regarded as an authority. he is a big deal. this guy is a mutt. >> judge jeanine: so you are not worried about that? >> no. >> judge jeanine: and finally the death penalty if he is charged with the crimes that he clearly can be he is eligible for the death penalty. >> absolutely. >> judge jeanine: do you think that this justice department will seek it? >> i sure hope so. he is a poster chil
. >>> the battle over cyber spying could be heating up. the obama administration is considering taking aggressive action against china. it follows repeated warnings. bill plante is at the white house. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it's mostly done by the military. but has become such a concern in recent months that president obama brought it up in a conversation with china's new president. they're considering ways to retaliate. officials say trade sanctions against china are among the things being considered. "the wall street journal" today reports other measures could include indictments of chinese nationals and even cyber attacks by the u.s. against the chinese hackers. there was a formal protest in china earlier this year and secretary of state john kerry said the u.s. and china have formed a group to work on the issue, but there's very deep skepticism about that since most of the chinese hacking is coming from the chinese military. anthony, norah? >> bill, thank you. time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. "the new york ti
. most recently, the obama administration's stated that week are giving them $123 million, and the opposition stated they wanted more than that. how can we defeat them when we are supplying them? at the same time, we have issues like benghazi and helicopter that had a hard crash landing in south korea this week, and nobody has covered that at all. is west, texas connected to the boston marathon bombing? was that a cover-up so they could do what they wanted to do in west, texas? how much fertilizer was taken away before the explosion occurred? does anybody have any control over that? i just don't see how we can defeat al qaeda and terrorism if we continue to put everyone on frites welfare without giving any drug test and saying you have 30, 90 days to get on welfare and get off and get you a job, things like that. we just need to bring back our moral values and ethics and hold our politicians to a standa make em up and do what they said they would do. host: thanks for the call. we will let his comments stand, unless you want to respond to anything he said. fort: is not unco
are being security purposes. i hope the obama administration will allow us that option that exists in our law. they have a very bad track record here. >> the white house telling reporters it would try the younger brother in federal court and that no options were considered. >> this is a matter that's decided by the department of justice and the attorney general, obviously at the top, the whole national security team supports this decision. >> military trial was not an option in this case because the 19-year-old is an american citizen. even if it provided more information about his brother who was killed last week. shep. >> shepard: catherine herridge in washington. catherine, thank you. that criminal complaint details the suspect's serious injuries. gunshot wounds to the head, the throat, the legs, and the hand. investigators say it appears the suspect shot himself as swat teams closed. in a possible attempt to kill himself they say. today, officers said he was in very bad shape by the time they took him down. >> moving up to the boat, he was actually laying down on the side of the boat.
out and disruptions occurred. not a good situation. rich: the obama administration says the altar of the faa staff is personnel workers, the only way to comply with the numbers of these automatic but it cuts is you have to furlough air traffic controllers. back to you. liz: that to me seems everybody is overblown mess. what do you think? rich: it depends on where you go. when i started with a flight control system where there are no delays. differentiating if this is delayed because of weather or if jfk they are doing tarmac work or the wind at laguardia. the number of different factors playing and a number of reasons they want to make it seem worse than it actually is. liz: tell me something i don't know on any given day. thank you. what will these delays real or imagined mean for the airlines? director and senior analyst. give me your assessment. is this way overblown? >> i think in the short term it is probably not. the faa shut down two summers ago and we had no traffic delays except for weather related to this says to us the administration wants there to be delays they are ca
. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound to the throat but he is responding to some questions to a team the federal investigators in writing. any indication as to what he is saying or maybe perhaps just what they are trying to get out of him at
brings me here today is i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as an enemy combatants. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to roll out and in the combat the status for the suspect at this time. i believe such a decision is premature. it is impossible for us to gather the evidence in just a few days to determine whether or not this individual should be held for questioning under the law of war. the decision by the administration to try this individual in federal court is a sound decision. it is the right decision. military commission trials are not available in cases like this. i wrote the 2009 military commission act. i have been the judge advocate for over 30 years, along with the help of many colleagues. we created a system for foreign terrorists. we purposely excluded american citizens. i have all the confidence in the world in article 3 courts at the federal level. they do a terrific job. i have confidence in our military commissions system. the decision by the administration not to proce
precisely defined. the obama administration said 48 hours, but that's simply their interpretation. now, this hole miranda issue though i think we can overstate its importance. all miranda does is restrict whether those statements can be used against tsarnaev himself in a court case. they can still use all this other evidence that they have against him. so they may simply decide we're not going to use these statements at all. we're going to prove our case with other evidence. >> true, jeff. >> but then it doesn't matter. >> i'm curious about the voluntary statements. if he offers something up, can't that also be used as opposed to bringing it out in interrogation? >> yes, although it would be difficult to say that an intubated sedated person suddenly decided to write out answers to questions. i think it's quite clear he's being questioned here. the real issue is does the government want to use those answers in court or do they simply want to use it to continue their investigation, which they certainly have every right to do. >> but there's one other issue that relates -- >> go ahead, pr
to the department of defense for the obama administration. jay, good to see you again, thank you very much for being with us. you have been involved in so many of these issues. we wanted to talk to you, about your take-away about enemy combatant. judicial decisions in a number of cases can you clarify how long can this exception from your wisdom last. is it the point the arrest. or the point of communication? >> well first of all, it's important to remember that any time dangerous criminal, suspect, is arrested for terrorist acts, our first impulse when that suspect is from a foreign land or is of a certain religion, should not be a reach for the military. the military is not the only answer here. and i warned about that in office, the possibility of over militarization of our common terrorism efforts, it's a whole government effort. second, the notion of designating the suspect as an enemy combatant, i'm not even sure is legal. in this situation. to be part of the enemy force in the congressionally authorized armed conflict from 2001, the suspect would need to be either part of al qaeda or an assoc
the obama administration changed the way the war is prosecuted. ordering the pentagon who stop using the term global war on terror. instead calling it an overseas contingency operation. the president's current cia director raised eyebrows when he declared jihad is not necessary lay bad thing. >> as americans, we refuse to live in feemplet nor do we describe our enemy as jihadists or islamists because jihad is a holy struggle a legitimate tenet of islam. >> our president says we have a war on al qaeda not a war on terror. >> that's ridiculous. this is ideologically based war which ideology that unfortunately emerges from a religion. >> critics say it comes down to semantics whether the administration considers this a war, involving enemy combatants or a law enforcement challenge. bret? >> bret: jennifer griffin live at the pentagon. thank you. much more on all of this with the panel tonight, an expanded panel. president obama will attend a memorial service thursday for the victims of the west texas fertilizer plant explosion. 14 people were killed in last week's blast and dozens more
seen throughout much of the obama administration. this is much more of a doctrine of keeping people in individual cells similar to what went on during the bush years. >> suarez: carol rosenberg of the miami herald, thanks for joining us. >> thank you, ray. >> brown: online later tonight, you can see additional excerpts from ray's interview with carol rosenberg, including more on those 86 detainees, cleared for release, who remain at guantanamo. >> ifill: now, economics correspondent paul solman reports on late-blooming self-starters. it's the latest chapter in his look at older workers in the american economy and all part of his on-going reporting "making sense of financial news." >> look at this nice, tight stomach with the abs which you could grate cheese on. >> reporter: at 55, judi henderson-townsend is working with a much younger crowd. >> it's like living in the land of dorian gray here. nobody ever ages. >> reporter: after a career spent working with stiffs in the corporate world, says townsend, she started mannequin madness. >> i sell mannequins, i rent mannequins, i repair
in the direction of enemy combatant, if we can get there. no time for on it. considering the fact that the obama administration has done away with all kinds of intense questioning, you will need more time. this guy will be treated pretty nicely. you will need time to get the information and to test the reliability of the information. the idea of worrying about prosecuting him, would not worry about that at all. stuart: he will be found guilty. >> you can prosecute him and at least three places. stuart: supposedly do the exact opposite. can it deliver negotiate, couldn't he say, look, we will not execute you, if you tell us. >> it is a risk. we tend to mess things up, rather than advance things. [ laughter ] stuart: mayor giuliani says he is and enemy combatants. >> either way the administration can get to that result. i do not know how strong the evidence is linking him to the al qaeda effort against the united states. i would go really far to try to make that case. stuart: eric giuliani, always a pleasure. thank you. we will hear from judge andrew napolitano this hour all. that will be at 10:35
of a larger cell, i'm wondering whether the obama administration of it drone- killing the leadership of these various organizations has brought us down the path to this. whether or not capturing these leaders of al qaeda and interrogating them like in the previous administration might have led to intelligence, it might have blown this open before the tragedy. host: clips from new york. he brought up the gun control issue. here's an article from the washington times this morning -- one other story today, this from the baltimore sun. i have a few minutes left to talk about the ballston bomber, the one that's in custody, should be designated as an enemy combatant? michael from arizona on our independent line. good morning. caller: it's actually arkansas. hi. i do believe there is a word for someone who is a u.s. citizen who commits an act of war isinst the u.s. -- it treason, punishable by death. notur u.s. government was being run by a bch o intellectualorons, but i would have already been convicted and put in front of a firing squad and shot. host: you are talking about the one that i
of national drug control policy spoke last week about the obama administration's response to substance abuse. gil kerlikowske also announced a $1.4 million grant to the national association of drug court professionals for their work in helping nonviolent offenders with substance abuse. hosted by the national press club in washington, d.c., this is just over 50 minutes. >> well, good afternoon, everybody. it's a great pleasure, and it's a great honor to be with all of you. first, let me thank so many people for being here today. and thank you for that wonderful introduction and the information, and i'm so glad you had a chance to spend some time with general dean who's somebody i'm going to talk about a lot in a few minutes along with a couple other people up here, also, that i've been so impressed with. the drug policy issue, the drug policy problems are really complex, and they're really difficult, and that's why i'm so appreciative of this forum to be able to talk a little bit more at length about it. and then, certainly, to answer the questions. let me also mention the fact that donna lin
discussion that the blind sheik, whose picture is up on the screen now, might be freed by the obama administration, that president morsi in egypt that seemed to infuriate you some what and you wrote an article, "will obama free the blind sheik?" now if you think about this, in this case, if the death penalty is not sought, are you concerned that some president down the road could ignore the issue of a life sentence imposed by a federal judge and just send the terrorist off somewhere? >> on this guy, tsarnaev? >> right. >> no, i'm not concerned about that. he's very different from the sheik. concerned about that. a sheikh is a highly symbolic figure among muslims. he was and still is widely respected as a muslim scholar, and regarded as an authority. he's a big deal. this guy is a mutt. >> so you're not worried about that? >> no. >> finally the death penalty, if he is charged with those crimes that he clearly can be, he's eligible for the death penalty? >> absolutely. >> do you think that this >> do you think this just disat the present time -- justice department will seek it? >> i h
the obama administration will allow us that and they have a bad track record. >> and this is not the course the administration will take. they will take reading him his rights after national security exception has run out and prosecuting him in a federal court as well. >> molly: thank you. >> megyn: more breaking news. news reporting that federal charges have now been filed against the surviving suspect. though they are reportedly being filed under seal. that means we don't get to see them. they will have to let it's know what the charges are but perhaps not all the supporting information. in a case of this magnitude there is no way they are going to keep the charges private and not public. in other words, what exactly has he been charged with? a terrorist act, using weapons of mass destruction? these were all on the potential list of charges. so we'll try to get more on what they plan to release to the general public in terms of what they say this man on your screen is actually guilty of according to our federal prosecutors. also, new reaction from the white house about the bombing investi
the thistle and the drone and to lay out the use of loans by the obama administration. it is recorded at american university in washington, d.c. is part of book tv college series. it's about half an hour to the >> booktv is on location at american university in washington, d.c.. we are pleased to be joined here by professor akbar ahmed at american university to give his most recent book is the vessel and the drone how america's war on taricani global terror on islam. dr. ahmed come visit a clash of civilizations or class of religion? >> i would say it is more complex. i find these concepts rather simplistic and by now more than ten years after 9/11, we should be aware of the complexity of what is happening on the ground a lot where america is involved in the various wars to it i find in this particular study that many of these conflicts are rooted in the clash already taking place before 9/11 between central governments and the tribes and communities on the periphery between states so therefore without an understanding of the culture and the history it is impossible to impose the simp
agreement. >> reporter: gonzalez suspects what may be happening now is in the obama administration is a quote, interagency scrum where some are pushing for a quick mirandizing. others may be advocating a delay so as much information as possible can be garnered, martha. martha: no doubt there is big discussion going on either way. the older brothers trip to chechnya in 2011 is getting a lot of attention. what can we learn about that, doug? >> reporter: we learned a bait of new information about that when the fbi tried to trace the elder tsnaraev's trip to russia and chechnya, the trail went cold for the most mundane much reasons. listen up. >> he went over to russia butp a parently when he got on the aeroflot plane, they misspelled his name so it never went into the system that he actually went to russia. >> reporter: others suggested they got all the radical indock operation -- indoctrination around the block from their boston home. >> you can point to radical imams here and there they put on their facebook pages. you about the fact they lived a few blocks away from a very controve
as opposed to within the criminal justice system, which seems to be what the obama administration will do. after all, he is a u.s. citizen. he carried out the crime on u.s. soil. and there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of legal basis to try him as enemy combatant, which is not to say there aren't going to be more calls particularly from the right to do just that. >> when in theory you have so much evidence on american soil, why tarnish the prosecution by going enemy combatant. if you have no backlash from anybody who says you didn't do it the right way. >> he stole a suspect. but clearly -- you've got to walk through the process, right? >> i was thinking this weekend, again, and i'm speculating, you read the articles. we know now he ran after his own brother. you know what the defense is going to be. i was brainwashed by my brother. i ran over him to get away. >> the older brother, basically was even asked to leave his own mosque because his anti-american views were so strong that the islamic community in cambridge was outraged. >> if they saw this happen, raise this question and raise h
is were tried in civilian courts. president obama back in 2009 said he no longer wanted to use the term enemy combatants. it's almost been removed from this administration's vocabulary even though we've heard it quite recently. we've heard this when there is a terrorist blot from conservative. they want to be sure that they're tried as an enemy combatant. not this time, and like everyone has been saying the case against this guy is so significant that they shouldn't have a hard time putting him away. >> cenk: joe, let's do it right. where they said, i didn't mirandaize him right away, and i used this public safety exception. but when the time had come, we're going to trial him in trials so liberals get off my back. >> the cynical view is is that's exactly what happened, but none of us are cynics. >> cenk: no, no. >> one thing you have to keep in mind. first, this is what conservatives do. the whole notion that this guy is some scary dude that we have to bring the full force of the law against him. this is what this arms argument does. it says that we as the united states government has
conversation six years ago when this was really very important to other administrations that what do we do to prepare for aging lgbt senior population or aging population overall? this is pre-obama health care. we were in the throats of discussing the san francisco universal or health care system in san francisco and how that would be potentially the contingency to deal with these issues demographically but yet it's still policy discussion that is requiring advocates, lawmakers, others and come together and figure out what the solutions should be and at the rate where the population is growing in its age will not keep up in demand on questions of discrimination or access to affordable or quality housing just as it is for those to retain their jobs because of discrimination or access to employment whether you're over 55 or not or lgbt or not but we know that level of discrimination is certainly compounded by being affiliated with communities even in san francisco sometimes is not given i think the just that it should be. in our population in the jail system we pulled demographic data, a
this was an ongoing situation to talk to the american people, it's something that president obama learned from george bush's mistakes after 9/11. >> we've gotten more resilient. one of the things that's changed after 9/11 all the tools, prosecutorial tools that we told the bush administration to go out and again. the public is very comfortable with. they're resilience is great. but we're much more comfortable with being surveiled. chris: aren't you amazed that we are? >> we forget about it. chris: we have surveillance camera across the street? >> i believe everywhere you go in a major city like new york city, you need to assume you're on some kind of a camera. >> we have not been aware of that. we are learning. chris: your paper by the way, reported this week that every second of the finish line of that, every square inch of that territory is on somebody's cell phone and they're going to accumulate it. >> and there's no privacy. let's face it. maybe that's going to be a warning to any group or individuals who want to do something like this. they are watching you. they may be watching you in your own
the metrics that this and the future administration will use to make sure that the border is truly secure. congress passed a law in 2007 requiring that the 100% of the e 0%operationally controlled." president obama and secretary napolitano abandoned that metric. the bill before us weakens that law by only requiring the southern border to be 90% effectively secured. in some sectors. only the so-lled high risk sectors. what about the other six? before green cards are allocated to those here illegally, the secretary only has to certify that the security plans and fencing's are "substantially deployed, operational, and completed." if the secretary does not do her job and a commission is created to provide recommendations, this is just a loophole that allows the secretary to neglect doing the job. another area of interest for me is employment verification measures. as i said before so many times, i was here in 1986 when we for the first time made it illegal for employers to hire undocumented individuals. i have been a champion for the e-verify system a staple in every workplace. it is an impor
the advisory he was taught by the wars outside the war zone. early on the obama administration. and he said in contrast to the wars in iraq and afghanistan where the united states has used a hammer, he said we, the obama administration, can use a scalpel. it was an idea i had that scalpel certainly applied a sos free. surgery without obligations. but we see that's not the case in a lot of places. so i thought i would take his analogy and make it a nice because nice fights are a lot messier. >> host: steve, california, you're on with mark mazzetti from "the new york times." >> caller: this. the united states has not declared war in over 70 years. the wars we thought, korea, vietnam, iraq, afghanistan have all been basically unconstitutional. we seem to have given up any a semblance of pretending to declare war, congress seems to have no stomach to declaring war but obviously no problem fighting them. i'm wondering whether or not you think that the militarization of the cia, potential conflict between the different agencies and the defense department might in fact said whether that we return
